My System is at the top of a very short list of chess classics. Nimzowitsch’s ideas have had a profound influence on modern chess thinking. Most chess masters will at some point have studied Nimzowitsch’s work, and not to have read My System is by many regarded as a shocking gap in a chess player’s education.

The problem for an English-speaking audience has been that My System was written in German more than eighty years ago. The commonly-used contemporary translations have sounded dated for some time, and were always questionable: the translators frequently toned down many passages, fearing Nimzowitsch’s biting wit would be too controversial.

This edition uses a brand-new translation that recreates the author’s original intentions. For the first time an English-speaking audience can appreciate the true nature of a famous chess book.

Review:

"The re-release of Nimzowitsch's extraordinary work, along with the additional material included by the publisher, makes the appeal and importance of this great book as relevant as it ever was." Eugene Manchester, ChessCafe

Synopsis:

For the first time, an English-speaking audience can appreciate the true nature of this famous, classic chess book as this brand-new translation recreates the author's original intention. Not to have read "My System" is regarded as a shocking gap in a chess player's education, but English speakers had only poor translations that toned down or even deleted many passages because the translators feared Nimzowitsch's famous biting wit would be controversial. Nimzowitsch's ideas about how to play better chess have had a profound influence on modern chess thinking. It is commonly agreed that almost every chess master in the world has studied Nimzowitsch's work. This is the first new English translation in decades. This is the first new English translation in decades and, unlike previous translations, does not censor or dilute the author's writing.
